2016 CIO Trend Report

Demonstrate proactive leadership by acknowledging and capitalizing on tomorrow’s opportunities.

Your Challenge

  • Headlines about new technological advancements rapidly become stories about disruption. Sometimes the headlines become tales about the complete usurpation of an organization’s business model by savvy, technology-fueled market competition.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • It has become the CIO’s responsibility to use technology to enable business expansion and define new industry frontiers. This business demand for new technology is creating added pressure to innovate.

Impact and Result

  • Where most trend reports serve as static documents containing a list of things for a CIO to worry about, Info-Tech has provided a report that focuses on presenting trends, identifying business implications, and providing material for the CIO to effectively prepare and respond.
  • As opposed to providing an exhaustive list of the technologies you need to worry about, this report instead focuses, at a strategic level, on the choices a CIO must make in 2016 to cope with this ever-changing landscape.
